Daiquiri Recipe With Malibu Rum and Fresh Lime Juice

Happy Hour: Coconut Lime Daiquiri

A daiquiri doesn't have to be a sugary, blended concoction. The classic version of the cocktail is made simply and served up, much like a Papa Doblé daiquiri, and uses just three ingredients: light rum, lime juice, and simple syrup.

I recently made daiquiris to use up an overload of lime juice, but then I realized I had no light rum, only the coconut variety. Would this be good or gross?

I shook one up and discovered that the lime and coconut combination is deliciously tropical and refreshing. I've made the drink several times since; it's like a cocktail you'd get at a tiki bar but far less trouble. Get the recipe when you

Daiquiri Recipe With Malibu Rum and Fresh Lime Juice 2010-05-24 11:20:43

Ingredients

  1. 1/2-ounce simple syrup, recipe follows
  2. 2 cups crushed ice, plus extra for chilling glass
  3. 2 ounces coconut rum
  4. 1-ounce freshly squeezed lime juice, strained of pulp

Directions

  1. Make the simple syrup: Place 2 cups sugar and 1 cup water into a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil. Decrease the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the saucepan and allow to cool completely. Syrup can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a month. Makes 3 cups.
  2. If your glass is not chilled, do so by placing some crushed ice in it and set it aside while you prepare the cocktail.
  3. Place 2 cups of crushed ice into a cocktail shaker. Pour the coconut rum, lime juice, and simple syrup over the ice, cover, and shake well. Remove the ice from your serving glass and strain the drink into it. Serve immediately.
